- Every kook with a boat

By Paul Hortense , 15-02-2010

Origin of name... - Ralph's was actually named by PFC Ralph Delvecchio, who first surfed it around '62. Delvecchio was close friends with Pat Curren (they were cub scouts together according to legend) and convinced Pat to shape him a 9"2 balsa gun for big days. He was later discharged for having enormous genitals.
